  1. I would like to express my deepest sympathy to each of you. “If a man die, shall he live again?” asked the man Job long ago. (Job 14:14, ) Perhaps you, too, have wondered about this. How would you feel if you knew that a reunion with your loved ones was possible right here on earth under the best of conditions? Well, the Bible makes the promise: “Your dead ones will live. . . . They will rise up.” And the Bible also says: “The righteous themselves will possess the earth, and they will reside forever upon it.”-Isaiah 26:19; Psalm 37:29. Our Heavenly Father promises also to wipe away the tears from our eyes and remove all the things (including death) that cause us so much pain, suffering, and sorrow forever. (Revelation 21:1-5) May you continue to find comfort in him. With sympathy Annette

  2. Dear Bud,Janet,George,Warren Gretchen and family. I was deeply saddened to hear about the passing of Marge. I have wonderful and fond memories of Marjorie. From the beginning, when I first met the “Fish clan”, she was warm and welcoming. Through the years, we would often talk about teaching & she would give me ideas. And then, of course, I always looked foward to the kind and loving words she would write in the never forgotten Christmas and birthday cards.I am thinking of you all at this sad time and please accept my heartfelt sympathy. No one who knew her will ever forget her. Isabel
